Fort Wayne Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

From firefighters to nurses, from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related stress is stressful. It influences our experience of pain and often triggers bouts of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here to help suppress the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. You can, too! Together, we’ll manage work-stress and back and neck pain.


Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention via pain. None of us is resistant to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and attending school on the path to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience job-related stress. The pressures of grades and friends and news and learning issues get to them. Adolescents get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy relationships, extreme academic pressures, and disappointing school lives may all set college students up for chronic low back pain. (1) 11% of firefighters reported moderate to extremely severe stress on the job. 40% reported musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted. More stress related to more such symptoms. (2) Trash collectors reported back pain issues – upper back pain 89%, shoulder pain 81%, wrist/hand pain 79%, neck pain 68% - which stressed them out more. (3) Researchers found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating that chronic low back pain interfered with their work. (4) It is a rare person whose job is pure joy and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is by your side.
